Author Guidelines

Instructions for Authors

A cover letter must be attached to all articles sent, including each author’s contribution, a declaration of originality, and transfer of rights form.

The journal issues unpublished articles in Spanish, English or Portuguese, related to the following typology:

  • Research. An article that presents the original results of concluded research projects in detail. The structure of the article must contain: introduction, methodology or hypothesis, results or findings, discussion, conclusions, and bibliographic references (including only those cited throughout the text).
  • Review. An article resulting from concluded research should analyze, systematize, and integrate the results of published or unpublished research on a specific field in science or technology, for the purposes of presenting the progress made and the development trends. It must contain at least fifty bibliographic references.

The journal may receive articles of other typologies or with other approaches (reflection papers, case reports, translations, etc.), if deemed relevant by the publisher or the committee or based on the purposes of a special edition. Authors may send enquiries in this regard if they are uncertain of the journal’s interest in a potential article.

 

Parts of the Article

  • The title must include thefollowing elements: a concise heading, abstract and keywords, as well as the name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address (preferably an institutional one) and the ORCID iD of the author(s).

 

The abstract sets forth the following aspects of the article: purpose, methodology (if applicable), logic development of the themes or results, author’s contribution or main perspective, and conclusions. The abstract must contain at least 250 words; furthermore, citations cannot be included in this part.

Keywords demonstrate the article’s main themes or concepts (between four and six), standardized in accordance with the Thesaurus of UNESCO and the European Education Thesaurus (EET), that can be checked visiting the following links:

If the article is the result of a research project, the research/project name and number and the name of the funding entity must be included as well.

  • The main text must consider the following guidelines:
  1. Wording and structure. It is suggested that authors carefully consider the quality of the wording and the organization of the article contents so that readers clearly understand the message.
  2. Length. The article must not exceed ten thousand words, without including the list of references. The text must be sent in Microsoft Word format and must be unlocked (fully editable).
  3. Tables and figures. With regard to articles containing figures (pictures, charts, graphs, drawings, maps, etc.) and tables, these must be mentioned in the main text and included immediately after their reference. Additionally, Arabic numerals must be used in the order of appearance (Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3, Table 1, Table 2, Table 3, and so on). Figures should be labeled with a photo caption, such as the following: “Figure 1. Colombia’s political map,” citing the source. For its part, tables include a title, i.e., “Table 1. Length of the Colombian natural parks,” also making a reference to its source in the photo caption. Finally, for editing purposes, figures must be included in JPEG format with a resolution of 600 dpi and in editable form. Tables must also be editable.
  4. Footnotes. These serve to explain, note or supplement the body of the text; however, whenever possible, these should be avoided, making sure that the information in the main text is necessary and sufficient to convey a clear message to the reader. Footnotes may not be used to include references under any circumstances.
  • Acknowledgments. These are included to mention the individuals who contributed to the article’s research or writing (maximum of 100 words).

List of references. To construct the list of works cited as well as its corresponding parenthetical referencing in the main text, checking American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines, Sixth Edition, is highly recommended.
